GW13 Ones to watch: Daryl Janmaat

The Scout says Watford's attacking wing-back is a standout FPL option in their improving defence

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 13 of Fantasy Premier League.

Daryl Janmaat (WAT) £4.4m

Watford's recent improvement at the back has raised the appeal of their key defenders.

The Hornets have recorded three clean sheets in the last five Gameweeks, keeping out Sheffield United, AFC Bournemouth and Norwich City.

By comparison, they had conceded in each of their first seven fixtures of 2019/20.

Right wing-back Janmaat has also shown his attacking potential during that period.

He produced an assist against Tottenham Hotspur and has returned 34 of his 36 points for the season in the last five Gameweeks.

The underlying statistics further highlight Janmaat's influence on the Watford attack.

His total of five chances created over Gameweeks 8 to 12 is joint-top with Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m). 

And the Dutchman's five successful crosses were more than double the total of any team-mate.

By comparison, the defender created only one chance and completed two crosses in the first seven Gameweeks.

Janmaat's recent run of points has caught the eye of FPL managers.

He is the ninth most-bought defender in the Gameweek, transferred in by 38,000+ for Watford's home encounter with Burnley.

The Clarets visit Vicarage Road having lacked a goal threat on their travels.

Away from home, their 16 shots on target is the third-lowest total in the Premier League.

That points to more success for the revived Watford backline, with Janmaat's attacking potential marking him out as their go-to defender.
